If you’re looking for ways to update your home for the fall, our Napa Valley real estate agents are eager to share their insider tips on what’s popular in fall interior décor ideas. This year, it’s all about color, and not just the traditional hues of orange, red, and deep greens.

Napa Valley Real Estate: Give Your Home an Inviting Autumn Look

Some classic fall decorating ideas like patterned blankets on patio seating and front porch swings, leafy wreaths, or gourds above the front door never go out of style. These newer trends, though, can really spice up your autumn decor without sacrificing your perennial favorites.


Sunflowers are a great way to transition from summer to fall. Though California’s stunning sunflower season officially ends in late August, you can still brighten up your home with these gorgeous beauties. Try a sunflower print doormat on the front porch or a floral wreath featuring sunflowers on the entry door.

Custom Jack-o-Lanterns

Even plain pumpkins add warmth and color to dining tables, fireplace mantles, and the front steps. Many craft stores offer personalized pumpkins that can say or portray anything you want on them. Another fun idea is to pick up some trendy jewel-toned pumpkins from your local home goods store that you can place on tables or bookshelves.


Whether it’s a trend with staying power remains to be seen, but there’s no denying that Barbiecore is extremely popular this year. A much-welcomed mood booster, the trend focuses on vibrant hues that lift spirits. Think hot pink pumpkins or bright blue throws, pillow covers, and dish towels.

Jewel Tones

For those who like their trends a little more on the traditional side, velvet pillows in vibrant shades of blue, green, orange, and purple can create an effect that feels appropriate for the cooler months. If you want to stick with earth tones, try hues like terracotta, taupe, and warm browns.

Unique Autumn Wreaths

Once reserved for the winter holidays, themed wreaths are now used throughout the year on doors, windows, and mantels. For a fresh take on a common decorating trend, try fashioning a wreath made entirely of fresh or metallic ginkgo or magnolia leaves. A voluptuous faux pampas grass wreath in rust or ivory makes a beautiful fall accent piece above the fireplace.
